AceShowbiz - %cRyan Gosling% is reportedly on the verge of dumping %cEva Mendes% for cheating on him. It was OK! that first claimed the "La La Land" actor might "dump" his baby mama after reports emerged revealing a "past relationship she had with an Aussie TV host."
The man in question was identified as Richard Wilkins. Citing a so-called source, the news outlet said, "Ryan's humiliated that Eva never told him about this man." The source alleged, "Now he can't help but wonder what else she's hiding from him. He's ready to throw in the towel."
OK! went on noting that "claims about Eva's past came out during an Australian radio interview" with Richard's son Christian. When Christian was asked about his "dad's fling with Eva," he allegedly responded, "I didn't even actually realize it was public knowledge, so there you go."
The supposed source claimed that Eva "insists Richard is just a friend, but Ryan doesn't know if he can believe her." However, the "Ghost Rider" actress who shares two children with Ryan "barely knows" Richard," according to Gossip Cop.
The site can confirm that the Aussie reporter has "simply interviewed her a couple of time." A rep for the 43-year-old actress points out, "He moderated an onstage Q&A many years ago in Australia that Eva was a part of, thus the photo of them on a carpet," and Wilkins "may have interviewed her at a film junket." The rep adds, "She doesn't know him on any personal level."
